SHOW SUMMARY: In part two of this week’s The Fix with PWTorch VIP analyst Todd Martin and host PWTorch editor Wade Keller, they answer Mailbag questions on these topics:

  • Another theory on the Bellas book being called “Incomparable.”
  • Is it time to cut way back on dives and just let a few wrestlers on each roster do them?
  • Is Cody’s approach to defending the TNT Title actually hurting Cody because he’s going so long with wrestler people don’t really know and he’s missing out on feuds with well-known established stars?
  • From a Star Power Mount Rushmore standpoint, who belongs alongside The Rock, Hulk Hogan, and Steve Austin?
  • Why did some mid-carders have such good win-loss records and which mid-carder from the 1990s have a better chance today?
  • An idea for a trade of Samoa Joe to another era and who he’d be traded for.
